David Nieuwoudt Ghost Corner Sauvignon Blanc 2008

David Nieuwoudt Ghost Corner Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Focused and full-flavoured with breathtaking intensity. Capsicum, fig and lemongrass aromas. Gooseberry flavours and great minerality from cool growing conditions. Skin and lees contact enhances richness. Satisfying now, but has structure to develop in bottle.
